Click Start...

Click Run...

Type: services.msc

Click ok...

Find (in the list): Messenger

Right click and click on properties.

Set the startup type to: Disabled (just click the arrow and choose from the options)

Click ok.

Log off or restart and no more popups.


I'll assume your using Windows XP.

It has nothing to do with MSN messenger apart from that they share the "messenger" name.

click here Sorry denis, but it's an easy link to follow and covers all versions of windows. Have a look and you will see very straightforward instructions on how to turn off the service. It's quite easy to do but slightly different for each version of windows. Please post back if you need more help and let me know which version of win. you are using. j.
